Is the Insurance Adjuster Really Looking Out for My Best Interests?

At Fendon Law Firm, P.C., our only goal is to help our clients secure the disability benefits that they both need and deserve – be it workers' compensation benefits or Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. For this reason, we encourage you to let one of our Phoenix disability lawyers guide you through the often complicated process of filing a claim. While the insurance adjuster may claim to have your best interests in mind, this is, unfortunately, rarely the case. There are certain things that an adjuster may neglect to tell you, so you should not hesitate to enlist the help of someone who will tell you the truth about your rights. Once the team at Fendon Law Firm, P.C. is on your case, we can ensure that:

You have access to suitable medical treatment

  • If you have been told by the insurance company that you can't change doctors, it is highly recommended that you discuss your rights with an attorney. Unless the carrier is self-insured and applied with the Industrial Commission of Arizona to control medical treatment, it is your right to switch doctors. Our Phoenix workers' compensation lawyers can help with this.

You receive the level of compensation that you deserve

  • Once your workers' compensation claim has been accepted or opened, a wage replacement calculation will be assigned to your case – as you may be entitled to temporary benefits. It is important to understand that you have the right to protest or appeal this determination, which can be done with the help of an experienced workers' compensation attorney.

You won't be bothered by insurance company "watchdogs"

  • Many times, the insurance company will assign a nurse case manager to an injured worker's case. Since they work for the insurance company, they generally won't have your best interests in mind. In fact, they often serve as "watchdogs." With the help of Fendon Law Firm, P.C., you can ensure that you won't be directly bothered by a nurse case manager.

If you are unsure about what rights you possess as an injured worker, it is highly recommended that you turn to a knowledgeable legal professional for guidance. When you seek counsel from an attorney at Fendon Law Firm, P.C., you can rest assured that we will diligently evaluate every aspect of your case and protect you from the insurance company's questionable tactics. All you have to do is contact our firm today at (888) 571-5494 to discuss your case with a Phoenix workers' compensation lawyer who truly cares about the future of our case. Not only are we accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), but we offer more than 50 years of combined legal experience. Call today!
